The SBEP Bay Guardians volunteers visited Bowlees Creek Island Bird Sanctuary on Saturday, March 1, 2014, to remove debris and exotic plants. At this event, there were forty volunteers including students from King Middle School and Sarasota High School. Since 1996, the 3-acre island of Bowlees Creek has been leased by the Audubon Society as a bird sanctuary. We would like to thank Rick Greenspun of the Sarasota Audubon for sponsoring lunch for this event. If you have a group interested in participating at a future Bay Guardian volunteer event, please contact us.
